What is Tuhopuu

Post by coldlamper » Fri Jul 15, 2005 5:25 pm

Forgive my ignorance but what exactly is Tuhopuu. I've done some searching and all I can presume is that it's an experimental build.
Is this correct?

Yep its the source playground for new features.

Every once and a while its synced with the current bf-blender tree.

Does anyone know how we got a name like "Tuhopuu"? I'm not even sure how to pronounce it. :?

Tuhopuu means "the evil tree". so it makes sense for an expirimental branch of blender. (not sure what language/mythology atm..)

not really correct :roll:

it is finnish and it means "tree of destruction" and NOT "the evil tree", ask any finnish person and they will say the same :)

You're kindof right there ztonzy =) 'Tree of destruction' is probably the best translation so far, still it's a bit of a loose one. There isn't really a word like 'tuhopuu' in finnish officially. It's more like putting 'destruction' and 'tree' together in a funny way in my opinion (eg. destructree or something - it really doesn't mean anything but everyone gets the point).

Off to work,
Mats

But blender tuhopuu is the evil tree. A bad brother from the bf.
A spilt off from the official tree to go it's own way and do evil things.
In the distance bf tree has a good look at what tuhopuu is doing and copies bad behaiviours 'cause b. still loves t. , no matter how ugly it is.
